      Pros

      - Would have the opportunity to handle full cycle of recruitment work, meeting clients, interview with candidates, presenting and offering candidates, etc. - Most teammates in the office are cheerful and talkative. No internal competition problems.

      Cons

      - Needs to talk A LOT! - Performance are very transparent in the office, and numbers need to be reported daily & weekly

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good for fresh grad to join as it'd be a steep learning curve Good co-workers as all are of similar personalities Work location is centralized / Internal HR who is based at Raffles place is one of the best HR around

      Cons

      CEO is honestly, a nice uncle but like a dictator Relatively temperamental leaders. Not the younger leaders, but those who have been with the firm for more than 10years. Serious mood swings and likes to vent out on juniors/ team members under them. If you are lucky, you get a proper answer. If you are unlucky (more often than not), you get eyerolls / black face/ sarcastic replies/ scoldings. Not much training provided. The leaders themselves (with 1-2 exception) do not even source for candidates at all, they are normally waiting for resumes to be sent to them. Vague commission payout every single month. You never know what is the calculation and even if you probe further, the reply from finance would be "it's confidential" but if consultants don't even know the breakdown themselves, how do they check and tally the amount? Dubious Commission is subjected to pro-ration for various funny reasons. Even when you do very well. There is no motivation to achieve high sales at all. No commission given if client makes payment late. Even when it is not consultant's fault. Consultants are encouraged to meet clients but ppl rarely go out as you hardly can claim for anything. Not even for a cup of coffee. Only thing you can claim is transport. Consultants were previously advised to avoid pre-booking or using card payment as there would be booking fee or 30cents service fee. Employee welfare is very negligible, even for medical. Not allowed to use office WIFI even though consultants absorb the cost (basically consultants absorb the cost for everything). Also paying 37% CPF contributions for our incentives, which is ridiculous. Take note that they have a 20% pay cut scheme. even if you bring in sales every month. ridiculous take home amount after 20% pay cut + 20% CPF
